Among the VIPs who attended the event is Former Senator Manny Villar. In his speech, he recalled how he has to commute long distance when he was still a UP student. This gave him the inspiration to help in making UP more accessible to students. Vista Land and Lifescapes, Inc., a family-owned business by Mr. Villar, is one of the major benefactors of UP Alabang.

Among them is SunnyTrip.ph, a travel platform connecting travellers to DOT accredited tour guides in the Philippines for bespoke travel experiences. It advocates for the promotion of Philippine tourism through the use of technology. It aims to create a centralize travel platform connecting the different travel entities in the Philippines.
